If you’re a runner, chances are you’re familiar with the aches and pains that accompany pulled muscles and strained joints. Luckily, Maha Yoga and Healing Arts has created a workshop designed specifically for you!

On October 13th, instructors Lisa and Teagan will lead Yoga for Runners, demonstrating poses that increase range of motion and flexibility in the areas that runners use most (hamstrings, quads, hips, and core). The idea is, by incorporating these poses into your training, you will improve your performance while preventing those all-too-common and totally unwelcome runners’ injuries. (I’m looking at you, torn ACLs.) That means you can spend less time lounging on the couch and icing that hamstring, and more time exploring the trails along Kelly Drive or in the Wissahickon. If you’re interested, learn more about the workshop here.

$25 before October 6th, $35 after, October 13th from 1 to 3:30 p.m., Maha Yoga and Healing Arts, 1700 Sansom Street, sixth floor, Philadelphia.
